Posted by: Denis / 21.04.2018
Russian Power Metal band Caesarius released their debut EP Dreamland. The EP drums were recorded at Blues Minus Studio by Victor Farafontov, and all the other were recorded in the band home studio.

Caesarius was formed at Moscow by Vasi Lichtenberg in 2017, that wanna play old school Power Metal. Soon after Andrew Gluss (guitar), Slava Salinger (guitar), Sergius Harrington (bass) and Vitaly Virbul (drums) joined the band and the lineup was completed.

Som do Darma / Imagery: Brazil's Progressive Power trio launches new music video 'The Ordeal'
Posted by: Denis / 20.04.2018
Joceir Bertoni (vocal/guitar), Ricardo Fanucchi (bass) and Bruno Pamplona (drums/vocal) are collectively known as Imagery, the most dangerous power trio of the Brazilian Progressive Rock scene!

When Imagery came to light they surprised even the most optimistic forecast. Definitely! After all, who would expect that a power trio from the countryside of Brazil that plays Progressive Rock mixed with Heavy Metal and Jazz would reap many fruits with so little time of career and just one album released?

It all started with the release show of The Inner Journey, their debut album, which came during the opening for Focus, the legendary Progressive Rock group, in 2012.

Then, the impact of the album in the national press might not have been better. The Inner Journey was also nominated for Dynamite Prize as one of the 'Best Brazilian Heavy Metal Albums' of 2012.

Right on the next year, Imagery gave one of the most important steps in its career that was the signing of a distribution agreement with the U.S. label Cleopatra Records (Tangerine Dream, Nektar, Hawkwind, Motörhead, Yes, Asia) that already released the album The Inner Journey in North America, Europe and Asia.

In 2014, the paths of Imagery and Focus crossed again. Imagery performed two more shows with Focus in Curitiba and Florianopolis. Imagery also visited many other cities in Brazil during the tour in promotion for The Inner Journey.

Since then, the band have been working on the compositions for its next album, still untitled. And after the release of three singles, Blinded Nation, People Say, End Of The Line, the band now presents a new one, The Ordeal.

"Like Start The War from our debut album, The Ordeal is a new version for an old song - Depois from Revoult's album I, the embryo of Imagery", explains drummer Bruno Pamplona, composer of lyrics and music. "The Ordeal comprehensively addresses, in retrospect, the human tribulation. It's almost a 'look back' at strenuous situations and difficult times in anyone's life trajectory."

Song and video were recorded at Plugue Estudio in Londrina/Brazil with the production by Júlio Anizelli and Bruno Pamplona. The video production is signed by Usina de Ideias.
Imperative PR / Death Metal superpower Posthuman Abomination unleash their debut album, Transcending Embodiment, on Comatose Music
Posted by: Denis / 20.04.2018
Imperative PR are proud to welcome to the roster a new superpower in the world of brutal Death Metal. Posthuman Abomination may be an epithet freshly inscribed in the annals of annihilation, but this brutal Death Metal machine was spawned in the imaginations of men well versed in the arts of clinical cruelty. Bringing together current and ex- members of Devangelic, Fecal God, Natrium, Modus Deliciti, Pit Of Toxic Slime, Vomit The Soul, Posthuman Abomination is an elite unit of twisted, bludgeoning, blasting, technical death metal destruction. Originally formed as a long distance, collaborative studio side project, the members of Posthuman Abomination quickly realised they had summoned to life something far too potent and powerful to be given anything less than their full devotion and dedication. Their 2017 demo, Crafting Life, drew the attention of Comatose Music – one of the world's leading labels when it comes to all things malevolent and battering. An alliance was quickly forged and now it is time to unveil the first diseased fruits of this union – Transcending Embodiment!

From the opening, title track onwards Transcending Embodiment is a full frontal assault on the senses. The guitars weave intricate razor wire patterns around your body, neatly and effectively dissecting the flesh while the bass and drums pound your bones to dust. Vocalist Lorenzo Orrù adds the final terrifying touch with his bestial roars and intimidating intonations, completing a sound spawned in nightmares.

This band, this album, possess firepower that few can comprehend, let alone match. Prepare for destruction, prepare for transformation and reconstruction, prepare for Posthuman Abomination!
  1. Transcending Embodiment
  2. Systematic Ecophagy
  3. Cyberbrain Drain
  4. Autogenetic
  5. Apocatastasis
  6. Crafting Life

Som do Darma / Maestrick inks deal with Marquee/Avalon from Japan
Posted by: Denis / 20.04.2018
The subjective and artistic fulfillment always came first for the members of Maestrick, the Brazilian Prog Rock/Metal band. Cultural relevance versus the market tendencies. When you can align this with the economic incentive coming from the market, surely one has the best configuration for the production and diffusion of a musical project. This is the case of Maestrick who has just signed a three-album deal with Japan's largest record label and one of the most important record labels in the world, Marquee/Avalon.

Same label of bands like Yes, Epica, Foreigner, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Edguy, Haken, Queensrÿche, Cavalera Conspiracy, among others, Avalon was founded in 1997 as a division (for the phonographic market) of Marquee Incorporated Co Ltda. First Maestrick's release on the label will be the album Espresso Della Vita: Solare that will hit the stores in Japan on May 23th.

Espresso Della Vita: Solare is the group's new studio album, successor of the acclaimed debut album, Unpuzzle!, and the EP The Trick Side Of Some Songs that included new versions that Maestrick did for classics of Beatles, Yes, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Queen, Rainbow. Espresso Della Vita: Solare is the first part of a conceptual album that makes an observation of the human life by the perspective of a train trip. The album was produced by Adair Daufembach (Tony Macalpine, Hibria, Hangar) that was also responsible for recording all the guitars of the album.

"How many times I got caught up on the site of a major record company, looking at the cast and dreaming that one day a band I was part of would have a work artistically relevant enough to be in the midst of my idols. Basically this is what this contract with Marquee/Avalon represents for me and for my brothers in Maestrick", said Fabio Caldeira, lead singer of Maestrick.

Besides Fabio, Maestrick is also formed by Heitor Matos (drums), Renato Montanha (bass) and Neemias Teixeira (keyboards). The quartet is in fact prepared to take advantage of every opportunity a contract of this magnitude can provide to a band like the Maestrick.

"It's a dream come true, it's a new stage that starts and more than anything we're ready for the new horizons that this trip will take us", added the singer.

Espresso Della Vita: Solare will bring the tracks
  1. Origami
  2. I a.m. Living
  3. Rooster Race
  4. Daily View
  5. Water Birds
  6. Keep Trying
  7. The Seed
  8. Far West
  9. Across The River

METALMESSAGE / METALWINGS (classic symphonic Metal) debut album 'For All Beyond'
Posted by: Artyom 'Sava' / 13.04.2018
On April 19th is the release of the much-anticipated debut album, for which METALWINGS wrote beautiful anthems. It may legitimately be reckoned with a solemn, inspiring SYMPHONIC METAL highlight, which will be able to compete with the greats of the profession! Check the promising album trailer for For All Beyond.
The fact that the enthusiastic music of these Bulgarian big-hearts wanders directly into the soul, is due to several strengths of the exceptionally artistic minds.

METALWINGS with the classically trained frontwoman Stela Atanasova have an exquisite singer whose bell-light and beguilingly feminine, operetta-like voice stands out high from the mass of the genre. With her violin, the soulful vocalist also conjures magical moments of sound.

The hymn-melodic and epically uplifting CLASSIC SYMPHONIC METAL of the Sofia based formation combines the finest elements of classical music and the timeless world of opera.

The fact that such music can be extremely powerful, without going into excessive degrees of hardness, the Bulgarians prove with absolute artistic bravura. Crisply added, sovereignly played rock nuances also provide for extensive listening pleasure.

Founded by allrounder Stela in 2010, she had a clear musical vision in mind from the start, making the catchy songs so compact, homogenous, compositionally perfect and altogether masterful.

In May 2016, METALWINGS released their debut EP Fallen Angel In The Hell after several single releases, whereupon they convincingly show off their own definition of romantic Metal beauty with four excellent compositions.
Weight Of Emptiness sign management deal with GlobMetal Promotions
Posted by: Denis / 13.04.2018
Chilean Doom/Melodic Death Metal band Weight Of Emptiness has inked a worldwide management deal with GlobMetal Promotions.

Weight Of Emptiness was formed in 2012 at Santiago, Chile, when the former members from the missing band Twilight Mist, Juan Acevedo and Alejandro Bravo on guitars and Alejandro Ruiz on vocals, started to make their first compositions. The band debut album Anfractuous Moments for Redemption was released in March 2017. It was recorded at The Farm Studio by Juan Acevedo and mixed/mastered by Richard Iturra. On March 22, 2018 the album Anfractuous Moments for Redemption was re-edited in Mexico in a co-production of the labels Concreto Records and Sun Empire Productions.
Imperative PR / Mind Enemies - Revenge (Italian Progressive Melodic heavy Metal)
Posted by: Denis / 13.04.2018
It's not often that you come across an album that combines an individuality of sound with technical prowess and an accessibility of song writing. It's even rarer to find such an album created entirely by one man...

Giuseppe Caruso is not your average Metal musician. He has studied percussion and guitar at some of the finest music colleges in Italy, taught percussion at the Institute of Science Poerio in Foggia and has experience of drumming with both thrash and traditional Metal bands. Giuseppe started the Mind Enemies project in 2010 and recorded his first songs at Nadir Music in 2011, under the guidance of Tommy Talamanca of Progressive Death metallers Sadist. In 2013 the first Mind Enemies EP was released. A tour of Russia followed before Guiseppe settled down to work on the first full length Mind Enemies album.

Revenge combines immaculately structured songs with wonderful, spiralling lead work that lifts everything to another level. Guiseppe's six string wizardry is breathtaking at times, but always woven expertly into the fabric of the songs it adorns, filling each song with life and colour. Songs like My World balance intricate rhythm work and complex riffs with simple, melodic vocal lines, giving that accessible quality to the virtuoso music. Each song captures different moods and feelings, with the positivity of Dream Time providing a bright contrast to the contemplative The Dark Life. Revenge is an album of depth that rewards repeated listening, revealing more with each play, although the dextrous solos can spellbind in an instant.

Revenge was first unveiled in late 2017, but with little promotional support its arrival went criminally unnoticed. Now the album is heading out into the world with the fanfare it deserves, where it will surely be welcomed with open arms by fans of top quality Metal music.
    Line-up:
  • Giuseppe Caruso – voice, guitar, drums and bass
  • MIND ENEMIES - REVENGE
  • LABEL: INDEPENDENT RELEASE
  • RELEASE DATE: 01/02/18
  • Genre: Melodic Progressive Heavy Metal

Sonic Night Music artist PERFECT DEFECT debuts new music video 'My People'
Posted by: Denis / 05.04.2018
Hard Rock band PERFECT DEFECT has released a new music video for Love Song. The self-titled debut was released on October 27th, 2017 via Sonic Night Music Club.

Then, the guitar solos and vocals were added to complete the feel of being right there. PERFECT DEFECT deftly move from rockers like Rollin’ With G and Bad Girls to the bluesy Ultra Blue and Southern-infused tracks like Treat Your Man and Used To Believe on a journey through deep album tracks.

They are currently in rotation on over 120 radio stations in the U.S. including TOP 30 listings in major markets such as New York City, San Francisco, Denver, Las Vegas, Portland, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Dallas.

Imperative PR / Dreamfire - Atlantean Symphony
Posted by: Denis / 29.03.2018
Back in 2014 musical mastermind Osirion unveiled the first full length album from his atmospheric, neo-classical/ambient solo project – Dreamfire. Nearly fifteen years in the making, Atlantean Symphony was an exploration of the worlds of myth and legend, a doorway to ancient mysteries; an experience that could transport the willing listener to realms beyond mundane experience. Despite only being released independently, the Dreamfire debut caught the imagination of all those who heard it and inspired rapturous responses from respected magazines like Zero Tolerance and Ondes Chocs.

Creatively drained by the writing and recording experience of creating Atlantean Symphony, Osirion withdrew from the spotlight, back into the shadows and the silence. However, as 2017 drew to a close, Minotauro Records were able to coax the enigmatic composer from his haunted halls once more and the first fruits of this new alliance are now available to all; a new edition of Atlantean Symphony, completely remastered, with stunning new artwork and booklet design and two bonus tracks; a 2018 reworking of the original album's grandiose finale, An Epitaph Engraved In Water and the Dreamfire interpretation of Ramin Djawadi's The Rains Of Castamere – as featured in the HBO series, Game Of Thrones.

The 2018 Expanded Edition of Atlantean Symphony is just the beginning of what we can expect from Dreamfire... but what a beginning! And after all, every great story begins with a captivating opening chapter. The doorway is open and your dreams are waiting...
  • DREAMFIRE – ATLANTEAN SYMPHONY 2018 EXPANDED EDITION
  • LABEL: MINOTAURO RECORDS
  • RELEASE DATE: 27/04/18

WAX MANIAX ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM FROM SIGN OF THE JACKAL
Posted by: Denis / 28.03.2018
In short time WAX MANIAX has earned a reputation among die- hard fans and record collectors alike for its comprehensive, archival precision in reissuing the revered works by some of Metal's foremost underground torchbearers - however, now WAX MANIAX is pleased to announce that old school will become new school with the signing of SIGN OF THE JACKAL. The Italian based, female fronted metal powerhouse is teaming up with WAX MANIAX to release their second full length album, Breaking the Spell, on May 25th.

In the cold of winter 2007 in Rovereto, Italy four friends brought together by a mutual passion for classic Heavy Metal and cult horror movies laid the groundwork for SIGN OF THE JACKAL. Taking cues from such titans of Metal as Acid, Warlock, Messiah Force, Black Knight, began to hone its live show and created a buzz amongst the European metal underground. This buzz caught the attention of Heavy Artillery Records whom in 2009 released their chilling Haunted House Tapes 7 inch EP, which was followed by the release of the 2011 maxi-EP The Beyond. In support of The Beyond, which held on to the top spot of CMJ's Loud Rock Top Ten Chart for several weeks, SIGN OF THE JACKAL played several European Metal festivals in Spain, Austria and most notably Germany's legendary Keep It True festival. Building on this excitement in 2013 SIGN OF THE JACKAL released the full length album Mark of the Beast, on High Roller Records to much acclaim among the Heavy Metal and fanzine faithful. Subsequently, the band spent the following two years promoting Mark of the Beast with tour and festival appearances all over Europe before dealing with lineup changes and finishing the material that would comprise their brand new full length album, Breaking the Spell. Continuing in the tradition of meshing together traditional Heavy Metal sounds and horror film imagery, SIGN OF THE JACKAL are back to take the Metal world by storm with the release of Breaking the Spell available worldwide May 25th.

Imperative PR / Kevin Lawry unveils his second prog rock solo album, The Journey Of Regret
Posted by: Denis / 28.03.2018
In November of 2016 Kevin Lawry broke free from his musical past, leaving the towering doom of Silent Winter and Khthon behind him, along with the psychedelic explorations of Crowned In Earth, with the release of his first solo album, The Shadows Stole The Dawn. Kevin explained his need to branch out on his own and follow his heart at the time...
"I feel that now is the time to move on and begin a fresh musical chapter without expectations of what a previous band name and history might suggest, to continue creating engaging music without boundaries! It's the end of a long era but an open door to a whole new musical landscape!"

On March 26th the second album of Kevin's solo career will be made available. The Journey Of Regret delves even deeper into the heart of the great '70s Progressive Rock classics, blending a depth of emotion with expansive music that runs the gamut from brooding melancholy to light, playful passages and explores countless meandering paths along the way. The musical freedom that The Shadows Stole The Dawn tentatively approached, The Journey Of Regret embraces wholeheartedly. The Journey Of Regret is accomplished, complete and happy in its own skin; it quietly reflects when the mood takes it, dances unselfconsciously when it wishes, leaps into playful complexity with a knowing wink and slips from darkness to a pulsing groove with a breathtaking smoothness. This is a genuine Progressive Rock album with all the adventurous spirit of the greats that inspired it – Yes, Genesis, Camel, Caravan, Gentle Giant and more.

Speaking about his latest album Kevin had these words to say...
"The Journey of Regret was inspired by the massively ambitious albums made by the classic Progressive Rock bands of the seventies. The songs were made with a huge amount of passion to create the feelings of wonder I felt when I first heard Pink Floyd, Genesis and Mike Oldfield as a child. Although lyrically on the dark side, the songs are very beautiful and uplifting. The Journey of Regret is the most vast, escapist and grand music I've created so far! It's also the closest I've ever come to writing a concept album as the lyrics are loosely based around an old man looking back on his life during his final moments."

Wanting nothing more than to give people the chance to share in the joy of his music Kevin has made The Journey Of Regret available for whatever price people feel able to pay on his bandcamp page. This is his gift to everyone who shares his passion for unfettered music. An album that is free in every sense of the word...

Imperative PR / Aborted Fetus - The Ancient Spirits of Decay (brutal Death Metal on Comatose Music)
Posted by: Denis / 07.03.2018
The cold winds have gathered in the foothills of the Ural Mountains and a storm beyond all storms is about to be unleashed. An implacable, merciless beast has stirred from its slumbers and an avalanche of raging violence is tearing down the icy slopes, ready to bury the world...

For nearly two decades Aborted Fetus have been unflinching in their pursuit of ruthless savagery. Nothing has been able to stand in their path as they have careered headlong into the very mouth of hell itself. Many thought that the Russian gorelords had achieved the ultimate expression of their bloody art with 2017s intimidating The Art Of Violent Torture, but now even that monumental act of sonic mutilation has been surpassed. The Ancient Spirits Of Decay towers over Aborted Fetus' previous atrocities, like a warlord standing triumphant on the broken bodies of his defeated enemies. Old school bludgeon and wanton destruction collides head on with modern complexity and technicality, while screaming, howling solos tear through the guts of each heart-bursting track. Vocalist Igor conducts the resulting carnage with his most imperious performance to date, spearheading what can only be described as total annihilation.

Many bands know how to lay down brutal sounds over a torrent of blast beats, but precious few can write songs like Aborted Fetus. This band take extremity to the very edge, but each track is exquisitely crafted, steeped in chilling atmosphere and viciously addictive. Swathed in bewitching artwork, courtesy of Armaada Art, The Ancient Spirits Of Decay sees Aborted Fetus setting new standards for brutal Death Metal.

When these Russian beasts descend from their mountain lair there is no place to hide, there is no question of mercy... there is only death.

BATTLESWORD (Melodic Death Metal from Germany)
Posted by: Denis / 01.03.2018
The year 2018 will continue to be characterized by ambitious creativity for BATTLESWORD. In addition to new live appearances at the Metaldays Open Air or the Metal Inferno in Paderborn, Germany, as support for Grave and Holy Moses, the five musicians are already in the middle of songwriting for a new album!

Since 1999, BATTLESWORD on the Lower Rhine have kept the heavy flag of MELODIC DEATH METAL resolutely high in the storm of stylistic trends and musical fashions. With a mighty live performance and unspeakably powerful songs, the capable five-piece regularly provides extensive neck pain and happy moods among the fans. In the camp of the authentic, because completely sincere troupe clearly is preferred class instead of mass. Since the existence of the band, therefore, only two demos and two albums have been released.

For the preparation of their second long player, BATTLESWORD have taken the necessary time even longer than usual. But in 2015, the recordings and the mix for the long-awaited album Banners Of Destruction were successfully completed. Official release date for Banners Of Destruction was April 1st, 2016.

Banners Of Destruction pops with a true bomb sound that rages as voluminously forward as it can shine with transparency. The tastefully oriented songs, despite the rich and cutting hardness, show BATTLESWORD again in their old strength and the record convinces persistently old and new fans alike. During the songwriting this time care was taken to keep the music a bit more variable than at the beginning. In addition, the compositions were expediently extended by some classic Heavy Metal elements.
